There are only two new rules to tax the understanding of football spectators this year:
¶ When a ball goes out of bounds, or when it is downed within 10 yd. of a sideline, it shall be brought 10 yd. in from the sideline for the next play. Object: to eliminate the waste of out-of-bounds plays formerly made to get the ball brought into free playing position.
¶ The offense of clipping (falling upon the calves of a player not carrying the ball) now includes running or diving into the back of such a player. Penalty: 15 yd.
